She was present at Savva's Winter Wonderlust to sign people up for her dance classes at Ruslan's Studio. With separate packages designed for beginners wanting to get fit through dance, intermediate enthusiasts looking to upgrade their skills, and a special choreography package for wedding dances, Ridy has it all.
